radio doesnt turn off when i open the door

radio doesnt turn off when i open the door

Postby lowdwn169 [OP] » Mar 17 2012, 4:29pm

i replaced the factory unit in my 05 silverado with an after market cd player. worked fine for the past 2 months until the past week or so. it wont turn off when i turn the truck off and open the door. if i undo the fuse then put it back in it works for about a day then does it again. i checked all my wiring and nothing is crossed/touching. any ideas?

on your truck there might be a module that you have to have in order to keep the factory chimes and that also controls the radio staying on until the door is opened. there could be something wrong with that module. just an idea for something to look at.

I installed an aftermarket ready in my in-laws 08 and the same thing happened. We used the Metra Axxess module, I called them about this issue and was told the unit needed a software update to correct this. After getting it back he plugged it back in his truck and the radio burnt up. He's been running the factory radio ever since. After this experience I will not buy from that company.

Better luck with yours

I have an aftermarket radio and the module for keeping all the chimes etc. I do notice sometime that when I shut the truck off and open the door it takes up to 10 seconds for the radio to turn off. Have you given it 10 seconds or so to see if it goes off?

Yes I have. The chimes dont work either ive just now noticed. When i unplug the fuse and plug it back in the chimes come back and the radio shuts off like normal then after a couple days it stops

I wired my radio differently. Its wired to a keyed power source with a inline fuse. No annoying chimes, no $100+ module to worry about and it shuts off like a radio should.at key off.

Have you tried just straight wiring it to a key on power source? 7 years like that and neither radio I've had has missed a beat.
